Carey, who serves as Senior Vice President of Human Resources at Kerzner International Bahamas Limited fills a position made vacant by the untimely death last year of Dr Keva Bethel.
“We are fortunate to have someone with Karen Carey’s experience and expertise in human resources and operational business planning join the organization at this level,” said Doctors Hospital Chairman Joe Krukowski, adding “as Doctors Hospital continues to develop new channels of business to ensure the company remains the leader in healthcare in The Bahamas, it is important that we continue to seek out industry leaders to help lead the way.”
Karen Carey is a member of the executive team at Atlantis and the One&Only Ocean Club, leading the human resources strategy with a combined workforce of more than 7500. Her experience in policy design and administration, cost and revenue improvements and employee and customer engagement were key to her selection.
Another factor in the decision to ask Karen Carey to join the Board was her experience in the hospitality industry.
“As we continue with our plan to re-open the Western Medical Plaza in just a few months and expand and develop our International Patient Program, it seemed natural that we look to the hospitality industry to fill this position at the Board level,” explained Doctors Hospital President Barry Rassin.
Carey has extensive experience in the Bahamian hospitality industry and is excited to bring that knowledge to another industry seeking to create direct linkages to the tourism field.
Doctors Hospital remains the first and only acute care facility in the region to earn Joint Commission International accreditation and is committed to providing the highest level of healthcare to Bahamians and to international patients seeking healthcare in The Bahamas.
